Keep scrolling to see the coolest milkshakes you have ever seen in you life!!!!!
My sister recently moved to Las Vegas. I just had the best weekend hanging out with my sistah. Seven Magic Mountains, chick flicks, cousin time, giant milkshakes, mermaid sightings, and my sister’s secret recipe chocolate chip cookies. (Soon to be not-so-secret, because, I am posting all about them next week!)
Have you ever heard of the Seven Magic Mountains? You gotta go! It was so cool! It is a giant art display of neon painted boulders stacked on top of each other! Totally cool and totally free! It is super easy to get there too! It is located just off the highway south of the strip.
Google Seven Magic Mountains for directions

The kids had a ball. (Except baby girl. She was having none of it. She gets hangry like her Momma.)
In Vegas, the sun has started setting around 4:30 ish or sooner!!!! So plan on getting there early, or else you will be there in the dark!…. We learned this lesson the hard way.
Mermaids at The Silverton Casino:
We entered through Bass Pro Shop. Bass Pro Shop is surprisingly TOTALLY COOL. It is basically a zoo of dead animals. Ha ha ha, I realize that does not sound very cool at all. But it was. The kids loved it. The aquarium was so amazing, and, in true Vegas form, totally over the top. I love Vegas! The mermaids swim at certain times. click here for show times! I couldn’t get a great pic of the mermaid because i was busy chasing kids. The kids loved it and were totally amazed. AND IT IS FREE.
Holsteins Burgers and Fries!
Holsteins Shakes and Buns
Mmmmmmmm….. Just look at these ridiculous milkshakes! They taste as good as they look, I promise!!!

So my sister stumbled upon this restaurant on Instagram. YOU MUST FOLLOW THEM @holsteinlv. My sister and I drooled over their Instagram pictures for hours! No joke. Their pumpkin pie shake is topped with AN ACTUAL SLICE OF PUMPKIN PIE! So delicious!!! We had promised our kiddos if they were good we would take them to get a milkshake. The kids were (relatively) good so we drug them across the casino, past the bars and shops, WE WERE LITERALLY THE ONLY PEOPLE WITH CHILDREN! We got so many dirty glares! We exhausted ourselves trying to find this dang restaurant. We finally corralled the kiddos and sat down. We opeed the menu and the first thing we see are the milk shakes…. First ingredient, VODKA! OHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOO! Vodka is great if you are NOT a kid or a Mormon. Since we are BOTH… we were ready to throw in the towel and cry. We thought we had made a HUGE mistake.
Our very nice waiter saved the day and told us that they can make the milkshakes without alcohol. Then he brings us cute kids menus, crayons, and sippy cups… My hero! Holsteins was voted best burgers in Las Vegas and they didn’t disappoint! I will cherish my milkshake memories for the rest of my life! SOOO FUN! Holsteins was surprisingly very kid friendly and I would go back in a heart beat. The servers were FANTASTIC. Take my word for it and just go!
P.s. I forgot my camera so ignore the un-professional quality of these pictures. The milkshakes are ten times prettier in real life.
Have you packed your bags and headed to Vegas yet?
Thanks sister for the fun weekend! Can’t wait to come back! Aren’t my nieces so cute!
I LOVE MY FAMILY!
